My doctor & I talked about the issues with taking clomid. He said he could write the prescription for me to take the drug however, the problem comes with the long term use and liability. He said that what would happen if, after taking clomid for ten plus years, I developed some unusual health issue. He said that I could hold him liable for the health issue because of the clomid. Basically there are no long term studies of men on clomid. My doctor did not flat out reject prescribing the drug to me. He did not dissuade from continuing to take it either. He even commended me for trying an alternative treatment. Furthermore he wants to monitor my testosterone levels for the next few months to see how I am doing. My next blood lab consists of checking the following:
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel, FSH, LH, Progesterone, Prolactin, Testosterone Total, Thyroid Panel with TSH, Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies, Estrogen Total Serum, DHEA, Free Testosterone
Was there anything else that should be checked?
My followup appointment is in the middle of December.
I did tell him that I was feeling much better meaning, more confident, energy, sex drive, no anxiety issues, basically I feel more alive.....
I do want to rule out the placebo effect and this next blood test should do that.
